Picking Up and Returning Library Items


Pickup Location:

Items available for pickup are placed on a cart insidethe library near the entrance, Monday - Thursday, 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM. Materials will be ordered alphabetically by last name. Your item(s) will already be checked out to you so you will not need to come to the circulation desk.


Return Location:

Place materials in the red book return (near the elevator) outside of the Annandale Campus Library lobby. Library materials will be quarantined for at least one business day upon return in accordance with current guidelines; please be patient as these items will remain on your account until the quarantine period has ended.


If you encounter any difficulty returning library items, please contact the library via email at or by phone at 703-323-3128 .
